About this deal

However, the 'plot,' such as it is, is disjointed and I would not recommend this to a person looking for a traditional structure. He is also a co-organiser of the annual UK Small Press Day and has been a judge or committee member for the Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition, the British Comic Awards and the SICBA Awards. IT’S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH is an intimate metanarrative that looks into the life of a selfish artist who must create for her own survival. Thorogood's "auto-bio-graphic-novel" feels personal and authentic, and makes no attempt to be self-effacing.

I’m glad other reviews seem to have seen something in it that I didn’t and people seem to have benefited from the book. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The ever shifting approach in narrative presentation allows us to appreciate the story from a number of different vantage points; to act as both observer and confidante as the book progresses. It's that back and forth, the expertise in modulating the tone, which combine with the self-awareness and the irritation at the audience to make me want to give Thorogood the almost certainly unhelpful label of 'the Stewart Lee of miserable autobiographical indie comics'. if i could consume all of her work at once, i would, but i've noticed this is really her only big work, which is shocking since it's so good.there's something about thorogood's way of story telling that makes it different from other peoples, but so enjoyable.

if i had read this book a couple of months back when i was fully suicidal it would've just made me enjoy my misery more if you will.Following the release of her well-received debut graphic novel, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott , Thorogood finds that artistic success is no cure for lifelong depression, which she draws as a looming Babadook-like monster. Some of the pages are stunningly beautiful, some are incredibly creative, some are staggeringly minimal. IT'S LONELY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH is an intimate metanarrative that looks into the life of a selfish artist who must create for her own survival. The self-conscious aspects there are real, and its a great technique (and you can quietly admit to yourself that the lofty moments actually are beautiful while still getting to laugh at yourself for it).
